Come be nourished in a long weekend retreat devoted to the healing energies of the Great Mother to support us in our roles as conscious midwives of the New World. The Mother has the capacity to heal anything when we are in alignment with her and it is of the highest good.
The Great Mother is known by many names such as the Goddess, Virgin Mary, Durga, Kuan Yin, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Gaia/Earth Mother, Isis, and others. She is found in all spiritual and religious traditions around the world. At this time She is calling out to us to reconnect with her and her wisdom and profound compassion to birth this New World coming in at this time.
This retreat will be ceremonial, contemplative, experiential and fun. Drawing on the powerful work of Joanna Macy and others, we visit a sacred grotto to the Mother, work with Sacred Fire and more. We will invoke the powerful presence of Great Mother to help us release our pain and learn to be more heart-centered and present to serve in these intense times. We will honor our ancestors and consider our descendants, along with all of our fellow plant and animal relatives to reawaken hope for our world.
There will be:
– An opening ceremony to honor our inherent divinity and collective pain
– A collective altar to the Great Mother around the world
– A visit the Holy Grotto to the Virgin Mary in Emmitsburg, MD
– Sacred Water Ceremony
– Sacred Fire Ceremony
– A Council of All Beings
– Contemplative Space for journaling and nature walks
– Mindfulness eating (of delicious foods from the Claggett Center dining hall)
– Sacred Circle sharing honoring the Divine Masculine and Sacred Feminine.
Join us in Sacred Space to shift from sorrow to empowered compassion by deepening our spiritual connection with the Great Mother.
